WA’s Jacob Diamond has recently emerged as one of the foremost singer songwriters in the west. His alt-folk sound is characterised with huge melodies and incisive lyrics, as he sings bold songs about love and death.

He will be performing at the free courtyard Sunday music session at the Fremantle Arts Centre today from 2-4 pm.

Now hoping the weather will clear up as it is quite dull out there with spots of rain.

There can be comfort in routine, so why not follow my Sunday routine with a visit to the Growers Green Farmers Market in the morning and then the free courtyard music session at the Fremantle Arts Centre in the afternoon.

Great breakfasts, fresh produce, bread, etc. at the Lefroy Road markets from 8 am till midday. Try some of the Dutch flavourites at the Treacle Treat stall of my friend Linda!

The Fremantle Arts Centre has Dan Howls on show from 2-4pm, who has quickly won fans with his dark blues guitar and gravelly vocals.

With a voice likened to Tom Waits, a new EP and a full band, come and see why Howls is generating so much buzz. He’ll be supported by local songwriter Ashby Ranson (WA).

It’s going to be a perfect day to be out and about in Fremantle and connect with your community, so don’t be a couch potato!
